The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity


Peppy wears a flapper costume with a plunging neckline. She and George dance and have mildly romantic interractions, even though he is married, but they never kiss. George dances with a man for comedic effect in one scene.

Violence & Gore


A man lights a fire in his house, and almost dies in the resulting fire.

George, a star of action movies, is seen sword fighting and chasing villains in movies. Characters that he plays sink in quicksand and are electrocuted as well. None of this is that graphic, because since the film takes place in the 1920's, the special effects are supposed to be like special effects from that time period.

Someone contemplates suicide by gunshot. Ultimately, they don't do it.

Peppy crashes her car into a tree (offscreen).



The middle finger is used once for about two seconds. "Damn" is used on a title card once.

Alcoholic beverages are consumed, and cigarettes smoked often.

The brief attempted suicide isn't graphic, but it may be emotionally upsetting.

Rated PG-13 for a disturbing image and a crude gesture
